THE GERMANS AND THE GENEVA CONVENTION

Geneva Convention of 1929 proclaims that members of armed forces who have laid down their arms and those unable to fight due to wounds or sickness – as long as they do not undertake hostile actions – should be treated humanely. However, the Germans ruthlessly murder insurgents as “bandits and terrorists”. On September 2, a similar fate befalls the patients of the biggest Old Town insurgent hospital at 7 Długa St. SS-men commanded by Hauptsturmfuehrer Kotschke capture the building. They order the staff and the lightly wounded to leave the building. The remaining 300 patients are murdered.
